Motorola XOOM "Project" Is Ice Cream Sandwich?

Well here is some good news to brighten up a few Fridays out there. The Motorola XOOM “Project” that we scooped earlier this week is reportedly an actual Ice Cream Sandwich update. It is currently rolling out to MFN (Motorola Feedback Network) members on both WiFi and 3G/4G XOOM’s as a soak test. Depending on how the soak test goes it may be rolled out quickly to the masses.

Oh and it’s 4.0.3 for those of you wondering. We’ll put together a full update listing once our device is updated!

HomePlug® Powerline Alliance Announces AV2 Specification for Next-Generation Broadband Speeds over Powerline Wires

HomePlug® Powerline Alliance Announces AV2 Specification for Next-Generation Broadband Speeds over Powerline Wires

A long time ago Powerline networking was thought to be the savior for people who wanted wired internet speeds without having to run new wiring. I mean it’s very difficult to run wires through your walls cleanly and not all of us can buy a brand new house pre construction and tell the electrician where to put network jacks. The solution was simple allow data transmission over existing wiring through out your house. That way you wouldn’t have to rely on wi-fi that can be temperamental at times. Unfortunately the HomePlug alliance never really gained much traction and the results of their efforts were never fully adopted by manufacturers. Yes there are products on the market but the speeds that you get out of them really aren’t worth the cost, you’re better off buying a good router.

The HomePlug Alliance is hoping that this trend will change with the new AV2 Specification that they’ve released. The new technology enables broadband performance and coverage over power line wires, and is backwards compatible. The updated coverage claims to support multiple HD devices simultaneously, and offers expanded coverage and performance, enhanced delivery of HD/3D streaming, and anticipates users moving towards “ultra-high-speed” broadband.

We’ll have to wait and see what manufacturers adopt this new standard and begin developing devices that support it. I for one was a big proponent of the technology when initially announced but it hasn’t caught on the way that I would have envisioned. Hopefully these new standards will accelerate the adoption and pricing for power line networking products will come down and make it a more feasible alternative.

Is your XOOM experiencing WiFi Issues?

Is your XOOM experiencing WiFi Issues?

Is your XOOM experiencing WiFi Issues?

Quick poll for the day, something that I noticed over the passed two days while using my XOOM. I randomly drop WiFi reception and then my device has a hard time re-connecting to the network. If I turn off my WiFi then turn it back on, the XOOM reconnects with no problem, until a bit later when it drops again. So my question to you folks, is are you experiencing the same thing or am I alone in my troubles?

Are you buying the New iPad ?
